**Que-26: The cost of 1 litre of milk is Rs 42*(3/5). Find the cost of 12*(1/2) litres of milk.**

**Solution- **The cost of 1 litre of milk is 42*(3/5) = Rs 213/5

the cost of 12*(1/2) = 25/2 litre of milk is

= 213/5 ÷ 25/2

= 213/5 x 2/25

= 213×25/2×5

**Que-27: The cost of 1 litre of petrol is Rs 65*(3/4). Find the cost of 36 litres of petrol.**

**Solution- **cost of one litre of petrol = 65*(3/4)

cost of 36 litre of petrol = 36 × 65.75

= Rs 2367.00 Ans.

**Que-28: The cost of 3*(1/2) metres of cloth is Rs 547*(3/4). Find the cost of 1 metre of cloth.**

**Solution-**cost of 3 1/2 m = 547 3/4

7/2m = 2191/4

so, cost 1 m of cloth is

1m = 2191/ 4 ÷ 7/2

= 2191/4 x 2/7

= 2191×2/4×7

= 313/2 = Rs 156*(1/2) Ans.

**Que-29: Tanvy cuts 54 m of cloth into pieces, each of length 3*(3/8)m. How many pieces does she get ?**

**Solution- **The total length of cloth = 54m

the length of each peace=3*(3/8) = 27/8

So, she get peace = 54 ÷ 27/8

= 16 Ans.

**Que-30: A cord of length 126*(1/2)m has been cut into 46 pieces of equal length. What is the length of each piece ?**

**Solution-**Length of Cord = 126 1/2 m

No. of Pieces = 46

Length of each piece = 126*(1/2) divided by 46

= 253/46

= 11/4 = 2*(3/4) m Ans.

**Que-31: A car travels 283(1/2)km in 4(2/3) hours. How far does it go in 1 hour ?**

**Solution- **Given: Distance travelled = 283(1/2) km Time taken = 4(2/3) hours

First, let’s convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions: 283(1/2) = (283 * 2 + 1) / 2 = 567 / 2 and 4(2/3) = (4 * 3 + 2) / 3 = 14 / 3

Now, we can calculate the speed (distance travelled per hour):

Speed = Distance / Time

= (567 / 2) km / (14 / 3) hours

= (567 / 2) * (3 / 14) km/h

= (567 * 3) / (2 * 14) km/h

= 1701 / 28 km/h

Now, to find out how far the car goes in 1 hour, we’ll divide the total distance by the total time:

Distance in 1 hour = Speed * 1 hour

= (1701 / 28) km/h * 1 hour

= 1701 / 28 km = 243/4 km Ans.

**Que-32: The area of a rectangular plot of land is 46(2/5) sq.m. If its length is 7(1/4)m, find its breadth.**

**Solution- **area of rectangular plot = length x breadth

46*2/5 = 7*1/4 x breadth

232/5 = 29/4 x breadth

breadth = area / length

breadth = (232/5) / (29/4)

breadth = 928 / 145 = 32/5 = 6*(2/5) m Ans.

**Que-33: The product of two fractions is 15(3/4). If one of them is 4(1/2), find the other.**

**Solution-**The product of two fractions is 15 3/4 . If one of them is 4 1/2 then,

4*(1/2) × x = 15*(3/4)

9/2 × x = 63/4

9x/2 = 63/4

36x = 126

x = 21/6

x = 7/2

x = 3*(1/2) Ans.
